Swapping!

The function of the magical portraits in Hogwarts (and, I assume, elsewhere) is definitely an interesting mystery. I love the extent you went in (beautifully) describing the creation process of the paintings. The idea of the objects gaining a soul, bringing them to life, was interesting and exquisitely executed (in my opinion).

The birth of the Fat Lady was, for lack of better words, adorable. Jeremiah is really endearing in his personality. His demeanor makes me smile and I think I especially love how kind he is. Their journey around the house, visiting the other paintings was extremely entertaining.

I love the society established within the paintings most of all, I think. As you wrote, they each have their own roles to play, and that idea alone is quite fun! It reminds me of parallel dimensions of reality, where there's the world in which we exist, and then there's the world in which the people in the portraits exist. It's really, really, fascinating!

Anyway, I thought this was overall brilliant! Awesome job!

Author's Response: Hello! :)

Yes, I agree! I find how they work and how animated they are so interesting, especially since many of them seem to have firm personalities. I'm glad you liked the creation process, I enjoyed writing it and imagining how confusing and wondrous it would be to be born fully formed and cognitive, but without having anything to base your identity around besides the subject who you were painted as. So I really enjoyed writing that, and it's wonderful to know you liked how it was written.

Aw! I'm happy you thought so! I'm really pleased to hear you liked Jeremiah, he is very kind and loves the lady unconditionally which she really needs at the moment. I'm glad you liked the journey, I absolutely loved imagining how the house might look from the frames and all the odd characters in there. :P

It's great to hear you liked the relationships between the paintings and the explanations of their roles in the house. It was indeed very fun to write. :) That's an interesting point about parallel dimensions, and I suppose it is a little like that: the two worlds observe one another and are beside each other, but never actually intersect properly.

Thanks for the amazing review! :D
